Judge Patricia A. Seitz of the US District Court for the Southern District of Florida sentenced Traian Bujduveanu to 35 months of imprisonment and three years of supervised release for his role in a conspiracy to export military and dual-use aircraft parts to Iran. Bujduveanu, a Romanian national and naturalized US citizen, pleaded guilty in April 2009 to charges of conspiracy to export goods to Iran in violation of the US embargo and to export defense articles without authorization. According to his plea, Bujduveanu used his corporation, Orion Aviation, to sell controlled aircraft parts to co-conspirators Hassan Keshari and his corporation Kesh Air International, which were each sentenced in May 2009. Bujduveanu falsified shipping documents to export the goods to Keshari’s customers in Iran by way of a freight forwarder in Dubai. The merchandise illegally exported included parts for the F-14 fighter jet, Cobra AH-1 Attack Helicopter and CH-53A Military Helicopter – each part of Iran’s military fleet.
